AWS Chatbot Command Examples

The AWS Chatbot in Slack is limited to informational queries. For example, you cannot reboot a LightSail instance via the AWS Chatbot. The JSON output will be slightly different to that of the normal AWS CLI. This is important to note as the inputs in the --query area may be different than expected. For example, AWS Chatbot may show 'PublicIpAddress' while the AWS CLI show 'publicIpAddress' (the word 'public' is capitalized when accessing AWS Chatbot).
